At one end of the spectrum is the guy who takes the heavily-loaded backpack full of gadgets, doo-dads, knick-knacks and neat stuff. Then he becomes the optimist, the guy at the other extreme.  Since he’s never been in an emergency situation, then it stands to reason that nothing will ever happen. As I type this, I have a butane lighter in my pocket, a whistle, knife, fingernail clippers, LED flashlight, small knife and magnesium stick on my belt clip, and a Swiss Army knife in my belt pouch. If I can grab my jacket on the way out the door, there is an Altoids tin mini-survival kit in the pocket.
Any personal survival kit will ultimately boil down to opinion, knowledge, skill levels and the season. Let’s start here: Many experts agree that a MINIMUM KIT should contain the following materials. While commercial survival kits are available, the quality of some items is sometimes reduced to cut costs. If you have certain medical needs or conditions, make sure the kit includes the appropriate medications.
Check out the many other articles about personal and wallet sized kits, plus car kits, home kits, etc. Leon Pantenburg is a wilderness enthusiast, and doesn't claim to be a survival expert or expertise as a survivalist.
As a newspaperman and journalist for three decades, covering search and rescue, sheriff's departments, floods, forest fires and other natural disasters and outdoor emergencies, Leon learned many people died unnecessarily or escaped miraculously from outdoor emergency situations when simple, common sense might have changed the outcome.
Leon now teaches common sense techniques to the average person in order to avert potential disasters. After graduating from Iowa State University, Leon completed a six-month, 2,552-mile solo Mississippi River canoe trip from the headwaters at Lake Itasca, Minn., to the Gulf of Mexico.
His wilderness backpacking experience includes extended solos through Yellowstone’s backcountry; hiking the John Muir Trail in California, and numerous shorter trips along the Pacific Crest Trail. Some of Leon's canoe trips include sojourns through the Okefenokee Swamp and National Wildlife Refuge in Georgia, the Big Black River swamp in Mississippi and the Boundary Waters canoe area in northern Minnesota and numerous small river trips in the Midwest and Pacific Northwest.

Since 1991, Leon has been an assistant scoutmaster with Boy Scout Troop 18 in Bend, and is a scoutmaster wilderness skills trainer for the Boy Scouts’ Fremont District. Leon earned a second degree black belt in Taekwondo, and competed in his last tournament (sparring and form) at age 49.

Let’s say an earthquake just hit and all the pictures are falling off the walls and it’s in the middle of January.
And if I can get to my car there is a full component of survival gear in there, including food, water, a sleeping bag, and several tarps.
Some things, such as fishing hooks, sinkers and line are included because people think they need them. Start with a realistic assessment of your skills and needs, then start researching. One size doesn’t fit all – a survival kit that works in the cold winter of Oregon, will be different than one designed for Florida, and vice versa.

In fact, be leery of any survival website – a lot of people are out to make a fast buck. He is an enthusiastic Bluegrass mandolin picker and fiddler and two-time finalist in the International Dutch Oven Society’s World Championships. Above all, this gear, or kit, must be lightweight and convenient to carry, or it gets left behind. Unless, one time, he decides to leave all that stuff at the car, since he’s never used anything and it’s damned heavy.
If I have to sprint for the door and can’t grab anything else, I have the minimum tools on me to build a fire for ourselves and the neighbors, stay warm, help others and signal for help.
I won’t waste any time looking for equipment, when the walls may literally be falling down around me. Start by contacting the people who work with emergencies every day: police, sheriff’s departments, search and rescue, the Red Cross and see if they have recommendations for necessary gear. Every technique, piece of equipment or skill recommended on this website has been thoroughly tested and researched. Gash the black coating of the side flint by metal strip for initial use in order to rub out enough sparks to ignite the fuel. This also allows you to conserve resources as well as increase burn times.With its slide top lid, Live Fire can also function as a candle when needed. The heat this product creates is extremely hot, which allows it to easily dry out and ignite wet wood or tough to light tinder.When flashing parts of the tin container, Live Fire becomes a signaling device. By using the products functionality to create fire, you can also create smoke signals for rescue.Because of the sleek and compact design, Live Fire fits easily into your pocket, purse, glove box, tackle box or backpack and can be easily added to your Emergency Readiness Kit or Bug Out Bag.
